4-4-2017 Onlangs verscheen het rapport "Tightening the Purse Strings: What Countering Terrorism Financing Costs Gender Equality & Security". Dit rapport laat zien hoe vrouwenrechtenorganisaties in het nauw komen door anti-terreurmaatregelen.
The International Human Rights Clinic at Duke University School of Law and the Women Peacemakers Program, have released a new report analyzing how rules to counter terrorism financing schemes have adversely impacted women's rights organizations and gender equality.
After 9/11, the international community brought a new focus and urgency to countering terrorism financing. As a result, many women's rights organizations have lost access to critical resources as well as the ability to fully use banking facilities, circumscribing how, where, and in some cases, even if they can do their core work.
The report Tightening the Purse Strings: What Countering Terrorism Financing Costs Gender Equality and Security represents the culmination of research, interviews, surveys, and statistical analysis revealing how responses to terrorism and violent extremism may in practice squeeze women's rights and their defenders between terror and counter-terror.
